seventy buddy from the militias. to be. six hundred from the militias on the wilds of. the street of the middle of the city i'm barely touched me ever since the violence started some three weeks ago residents of bani walid has been appealing to the international community for assistance to moscow took up the score by drafting a statement that a put forward to the united nations security council earlier this week but that was blocked by the united states prompting a response from moscow saying that a found as odd and strange in a context understand why such a statement had not been approved it's also course maybe an international community to accuse both washington and others of double standards you need to remember it wasn't so long ago that russia and china were blamed for voting against resolutions in libya and now the question is being asked why when moscow puts forward for
1:05 pm
calling for assistance in body while it is this being stopped by washington. or he's managed to make contact with an eyewitness in the city she says militias are carrying out mass killings of civilians continue to call on the international community to help. these are not governmental forces there militias an armed gangsters surrounding anyone without any legitimacy the media is prohibited from reporting on what's happening in the city the situation is horrible crimes are committed communications were deliberately cut in order for these gangsters to prevent any person from communicating what's really happening there bulldozing houses they're setting houses on fire stealing everything they find moreover they committed massacres killing as many people as they counted people here in bani walid want to return to their homes they say that their cities totally destroyed nevertheless they want to go back and live in the wreckage they refused to be driven out of the city secondly they request all humanitarian organizations including the u.n.

1:07 pm
not to end game at it for many reasons i think both sides still have the desire to resort to the language of ours because they want to make a decisive change on the ground to a negotiated. future compromise or else the program has neither the army know position or. will supremacy on the other side or thought you were a decisive victory at least on the ground that is why the hostilities and the operations would continue the second one is the absence of. effective mechanism to possible the two most if any if so why was the filters only for four days only for four days the other point is that this so-called free syrian army is not the united body we all know that it is in fact mental skills units as many of them have no sense of going to receive orders some of being on the. other side of the fence and i just saw the on going on turkey and also we have qaida. objectives in the.
